RAA Sets ‘Seaside Songfest’ For Fort Tilden
A night of music comes to the Fort Tilden Post Theatre with voices that will touch the stars, as the Rockaway Artists Alliance and Rockaway Theatre Company present Seaside Songfest on Saturday June 4 at 7 p.m.
Taking the stage will be the amassed talents of members of the Drifters, The Flamingos, The Coasters and the Revlons and other vocalists as both Seaside Interprise and Traditionally Yours perform a powerful program of early Rock and Roll, Pop, R&B, Gospel and Jazz. Organized by RAA member and journeyman singer James McKay, proceeds from this first of a kind concert will support both the RTC and RAA. Seaside Interprise will perform with their solid backing group Common Ground, while the award winning Traditionally Yours will weave a cappella magic with their vocal harmonies.
Tickets for Seaside Songfest are available through the RTC Hotline 718 850-2450 and at the box office up to one hour before show time. Admission is a $15 donation. Refreshments, T-shirts and CD’s will also be on sale. Arrive early. Don’t miss a note as this music comes alive and shakes the rafters.
Seaside Songfest takes place in the newly renovated Post Theatre at Fort Tilden, Queens. Once the center of camp cultural and entertainment life, much effort has gone into restoring the structure, preserving the past and building a facility equipped to provide a state of the art live theatre experience.
Fort Tilden is part of Gateway National Recreation Area.
